The Work-Share Program gives you an alternative to laying off your employees. It allows you to let your employees keep working, but with fewer hours. While they are working fewer hours, CDLE pays them part of their regular unemployment benefits.
You figure out how many hours you can continue to pay. Your employees share those hours as part of the work-share plan. All your employees can be in the Work-Share Program, or employees from a certain unit can be in the Program. It depends on your needs for your employees.
